for being with us. everyone right now, the dialogue is about health care. what do you want to see with health care? where do you think we are at now? caller: guest: it is a mess right there is not any question about it that things need to be done. i think some of those things are very, very obvious. there is some need for reform in the insurance industry. we should be insuring pre- existing conditions. we should give small companies and associations the ability to pull together to expand the base of the coverage in terms of the number of people. and you would get better rates. there's not any doubt about that. we should be emphasizing the tort reform. that'll help. i am not sure that it is the answer to everything, but that will help in terms of needless expenses. we should be emphasizing wellness and prevention. if you really want to make a difference in a person's life, get on top of obesity issues when children are young. if we can emphasize that -- another thing we have to do in terms of health care reform, we often times here this 47 million it that are not insured, but about

the scenes with us with his assets to get this done. it has been a community push and we're proud. >> cindy, even though his remains have been found, there are still being unanswered questions. i think the biggest one for the speicher family is how did he die, did he die as a result of being shot down or was he captured, taken into custody and killed later. has the pentagon said anything to the family after examining the remains that might shed light on that? >> not directly. now we've heard from other sources that there is a discussion that he died in the crash. he didn't die in the crash. dead men don't eject. so captain speicher ejected from the plane, he was on the ground. the question is for how long. this area has been searched in 1995. it had been searched in 1996. we had searched it separately. we have to do our own investigation, we'll do it in cooperation with the navy, and then at that point we will have a final end to this story. >> and after 18 years, are plans in the works now for a proper burial for captain speicher? >> yes, sir. he will be given, of course, the proper milita
